What to Expect From HBOT?

If you’re a Chicago resident and you’d like to know how Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy could improve your health and well-being, HBOT Chicago’s clinics and facilities are ready to provide you top quality Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy, an incredible new technology that allows patients to recover from harmful, debilitating conditions such as:

  • Carbon monoxide poisoning
  • Cyanide poisoning
  • Crush injuries
  • Gas gangrene (a form of gangrene in which gas collects in tissues)
  • Decompression sickness
  • Acute or traumatic reduced blood flow in the arteries
  • Compromised skin grafts and flaps
  • Infection in a bone (osteomyelitis) that doesn’t respond to other treatment
  • Delayed radiation injury
  • Flesh-eating disease (necrotizing soft tissue infection)
  • Air or gas bubble trapped in a blood vessel (air or gas embolism)
  • Chronic infection called actinomycosis
  • Diabetic wounds that are not healing properly

However, hyperbaric oxygen therapy remains a relatively uncommon procedure that new patients often find intimidating. Although the name sounds complicated, the procedure itself is a safe and comfortable process, with overall benefits that are well worth the time.
